“What an amazing weekend we had a Ballards!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

I've been vacationing on Block Island for eleven years now. We have always loved spending time at Ballard's...whether it was for an overnight stay, a day trip to the beach or lunch on the back patio. This past weekend was our first trip of the season, and I am blown away with the changes they have made to the accomodations as well as the menu. The newly renovated rooms are amazing. Their new look is fresh and modern...yet still has the Block Island beachy charm. Their were seven of us who stayed the night, and we spent more time in our room than ever.....because it was so beautiful!! The menu has some new additions...and really captures that classic New England lobster house feel. All of the staff members that we met were so nice..and always had a smile. We're heading back out to the island soon....and we just cant wait to get back out to Ballard's and soak up the sun!!!
